Yeah, Biden winning is the only positive thing to happen this year. My dad died, covid has caused so many issues for my family and I’m so tired of it all.
awww -- so sorry. :( Losing a parent in the time of Covid is really, really awful. You can't have the same type of funeral / remembrance, you can't get the same familial support, you can't celebrate their life in the same way. It's just so hard. Sorry for your loss.
My family is safe and fed and housed. My children had play dates today in the park with masks. I saw a friend and we went for a walk with masks and it made such a difference in my mental health to see her and catch up. We are all here in this alternate reality. And people were doing salsa in masks in Central park- we don't give up!
I’m very happy that my DC, who started as a 9th grader at a new school, managed to meet some new friends even though she has only had a total of 8 days of in-person school so far.
Biden won! We will have a vaccine soon. humanity is pretty awesome! But yes i am also horribly depressed about exactly this. But happy about the aforementioned.
While we humans are stuck at home, air pollution and noise pollution and ocean traffic are down, so the environment is getting a little bounce. Also... a lot of us have stayed home and prevented a lot of covid. Not all of the covid, but a lot.
Kamala Harris? That's huge for me, we elected the first woman VP and a woman of color on top of that.
I’m really looking forward to the family time and not having to see my inlaws
I know everyone is maxed out on having to deal with kids at home so much more, but I am looking forward to the holidays and the lack of any school, holiday events or travel. My kids are tweens so they can fend for themselves during the day, but I imagine a lot of movies and TV shows bingeing, board games and cooking in the evenings.
You can go to the Met with timed, reserved tickets and have entire rooms to yourself, even on a weekend. It's such a treat to be able to meander around museums without having to fight through crowds.
I went to MoMA and it was not empty at all. I don't know how they calculate their capacity limits.
My socially awkward tween has benefited from less time physically in middle school. we are definitely having a less stressful MS experience than I had anticipated and this is giving my kid a chance to mature and get it together a bit so next fall could actually be a good time to “relaunch“.
